Best Wishes Flower Card and Chocolate Wax Melts

I began with the flower for this card last night. Jak Heath has a wonderful tutorial on her blog Crafter's Kitchen for this amazing nestabilities Chrysanthemum . I just had to have a go. I will be entering this card into the Digital Tuesday Challenge #31 which asks to have Flowers as a feature. Also entering into the Sew Many Cards Challenge #11 which asks for stitching of any form. I have hand stitched around the edge of the card using gold metallic thread. The background card I embossed in my 'Victoria' folder. I have used my Octagon Nestabilities from Blue Edge Crafts for the two toppers with alternating white card and gold metallic paper. The flower I cut from paper I made a couple of years ago. We had white paper and layered different colours of crepe on top and then sprayed with water. Let it sit for a little bit while the colours soaked into the paper. Finally, found a use for it.

Now check out what I received in the mail yesterday. I had just returned home from grocery shopping and had no lunch and opened this up. I really had to keep saying to myself 'no these are not real they are chocolate wax melts that smell like raspberry chocolate'. I showed my husband when he arrived home and he was drooling ...... I had to tell him quickly before his hand went into grab one to eat. So thanks so much Rebecca at Purple Sparkle.
